It requires us to persevere in our thinking and our efforts – without threat of humiliation or being labelled stupid

 

It requires to move beyond superficial knowledge and move toward deep understanding.

 

Perhaps if we want to see some of the educational reforms that come with “unlearning”, we need to start creating the conditions for “unlearning” for many of our educational partners

 

Still figuring it out…..

Unlearning is the real challenge here ... the learning comes easy after that.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, March 16, 2013 9:58 PM

"When we unlearn something it requires us to be vulnerable to our own fallibility.

It requires us to collaborate and be open to others’ thoughts and opinions

It requires us to be to critical thinkers and push the limits of our preconceived ideas.

It requires us to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes”.

It requires moving beyond the limitations of “I” and move towards the power of “we”

It requires us to persevere in our thinking and our efforts – without threat of humiliation or being labelled stupid."

Such individual and group attributes require a trusting collegial culture amongst teachers which requires continual effort and focus.

A Great Guide on Teaching Students about Digital Footprint | Digital learning and student engagement | Scoop.it

Have you ever Googled yourself ? Have you ever checked your virtual identity? Do you know that you leave a digital footprint every time you get online? Do you know that whatever you do online is accumulated into a digital dossier traceable by others? These and several other similar questions are but the emerging tip of the sinking iceberg--one that is packed full of concerns related to issues of our online identity and privacy issues.

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's curator insight, April 25, 2013 10:54 PM

Managing one’s digital identity is a skill that we need to learn and teach our kids and students about. In a world digitally focused, the boundaries between the real and virtual are blurred.


As teachers and educators, we need to be a role model for our students and show them how they can interact with the virtual world and what they should do to keep themselves safe. . .

10 Tips To Build A Responsive Website [Infographic] | Digital learning and student engagement | Scoop.it

Want your website to look great on smartphones, tablets, PCs and even TVs? Learn how to go fully responsive.


The Web and the mobile browsers remain one of the top ways that users interact with websites and if they have trouble on their smartphone, there is a good chance they are not coming back.

That’s where responsive design can help.

Responsive design is a concept where you build your website once and then format it so it can adapt to any screen size that accesses it. Designers use HTML5 and CSS to build the sites and set parameters so the content will resize itself whether the user is in vertical or horizontal viewing mode, on a tablet, desktop or smartphone or even a screen as large as a television...
